The Power Of The Dream
Life offers everyone gifts disguised as challenges.
This is one of the messages Dr. Terry Kelly delivers in his keynote addresses.
This unique presentation is an opportunity to review your talents and abilities and reaffirm your purpose.
Terry is the living model of his message, understanding his blindness as a gift that opens possibility and opportunity.
Using personal anecdotes peppered with humour, songs, and audience participation, Terry encourages individuals to develop their own values and strategies for living and working happily and healthily.
Explore the importance of communication, dreams, goals, choices and responsibilities; understand and celebrate our differences; balance our business and personal lives; and realize the value of enthusiasm!
The Power of the Dream will inspire, entertain, and holistically nurture your well-being.

He is most recognized for his inspirational song “A Pittance of Time”.
Terry’s motivational presentations, “We Can Do Anything” and “The Power of the Dream”, are based on his own life experiences and the challenges he has overcome – and have inspired students, parents, teachers, government and corporate employees throughout North America.
Terry is a recipient of the King Clancy Award and has Honorary Doctorates in Civil Laws and in Fine Arts from the University of Kings College and Saint Mary’s University, respectively. He has received the Canadian Country Music Association’s Humanitarian Award; and has been appointed to the Order of Canada.
In the athletic field, Terry has distinguished himself as the third blind person in the world to run the mile in under five minutes.
From school classrooms to corporate boardrooms, from the recording studio to international conferences, from national radio shows to the pilot seat of an aircraft, from the controls of a Seadoo to the running of a sub-five-minute mile, Terry Kelly has been there. He has used his life experiences to touch the hearts of many and to motivate tens of thousands to live their lives to the fullest and, by his example, overcome personal challenges of all types.
Rarely will you find such a unique individual as Terry who can deliver a powerful keynote or motivational presentation (accentuated with music); perform for an after dinner concert; entertain an audience in a party atmosphere; or sing the Canadian and/or American national anthem/s.
When performing in concert or for other full music engagements, Terry performs either solo, as a duo, a trio or with his full band. Terry’s keynote and speaking engagements on the other hand are delivered by Terry solo.
You will find that one or more of these scenarios delivered by Terry will be unique and satisfying – we guarantee it !
Whether you need a speaker and/or entertainer for a lunch hour engagement or a full conference program, we offer packages that work with most budgets.

“Your presentation was in a word phenomenal! As I mentioned to you after the ceremony in all my years with the organization and nine conferences, your keynote address was the first I left feeling good about. Many of our members have commented to me that they felt the same way. They left the closing keynote in an upbeat and inspired mood.”
